Bill Walton continued on playing, even though he had injuries that recurred over and over again, always hoping to return back to his position as a regular starter in the game he loved.

(A) on playing, even though he had injuries that recurred over and over again, always hoping to return back
(B) playing, in spite of recurrent injuries, always hoping to return
(C) playing, though injured over and over, and he was always hoping to return back
(D) on playing, even with injuries that recurred, and always hoped to return
(E) to play, despite recurring injuries, hoping that the return

Is 'always hoping to return' correct.

I went for (D)..even though 'even with injuries that recurred' and 'on playing' doesnt sound right.

I would go for B.
Bill Walton continued_______to his position as a regular starter in the game he loved.

'...continued...' should be followed by '...playing...', the use of '...on playing...' is incorrect.
now we are left with option B and C.
C is wrong because:
(C) playing, though injured over and over, and he was always hoping to return back

'...to play...' could be used but the last part of the option does not link well with the remaining sentence
(E) to play, despite recurring injuries, hoping that the return...to his position...'
